This is the simplest and quickest way to dice an onion. If you don't want to cry--just breathe through your mouth the entire time. If you don't breathe through your nose you should be fine.
**Disclaimer 1: This project involves sharp knives. If your knife is dull, you have a tendency to chop off your appendages, or you are small child, you should not attempt this project.**
**Disclaimer 2: If you don't follow the breathing instructions, and this makes you cry, make sure you wash your hands before rubbing your eyes...then find a shoulder to cry on...**

Slice off the top of the onion--do not cut off the root end!
